Making It Happen: Gender Equitable Classrooms


by Elois Scott & Heather McCollum 1993

In the first section of this chapter we explore current research on variations in teaching practice that result in inequities between girls and boys and between minority and non-minority groups and we examine the consequences of these inequities. In the second section we review the research on changing institutional behavior and we tie what is known from research about institutional change to how we can change teachers' behavior to bring about better practice. In the third section we use the research on effective teaching to suggest strategies for teachers that will facilitate a more equitable classroom environment for all students. Finally, we draw upon a recent report of the National Coalition on Women and Girls in Education that shows how reaching the National Education Goals for the year 2000 is contingent upon making sure that the educational needs of girls and women are met.
